Between Texts, Beyond Words

Intertextuality and Translation

edited by

Nicoletta Pesaro    Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, Italia     ORCID iD



This volume offers an overview on a variety of intertextual, interdiscursive and cross-cultural practices in the field of translation between Asian and European languages. From a twelth-century Persian poet to a Chinese female novelist of the last century, from the ‘cultural translation’ of Christian texts carried out in pre-modern Japan and modern China, up to the making of the modern Chinese theory of translation based on its encounter with Western literature, the articles collected provide many valuable insights, ensuring a deeper comprehension of the evolving relations between cultures and of the tools adopted by both Asian and European translators on each particular occasion.
